Daesh (ISIS) headquarters in this city at the western gateway to Raqqa has been crushed like a sand castle by American bombs.The most visible people sporting full beards Thursday were American special operations soldiers who accompanied visiting U.S. special envoy Brett McGurk.r The black balloon of the Daesh caliphate is deflating quickly in Syria, as in Iraq. There may be up to a year of hard fighting left, but the surprise for U.S. officials is that the battle in eastern Syria is going faster and better than expected. The SDF suffered about 100 killed and more than 300 wounded in the bloody operation, but it worked, and in this part of the world, success breeds success.The U.S. seems to have found a way, in its almost accidental alliance with the Syrian Kurds, to drive Daesh from eastern Syria and stabilize this part of the country.The U.S. and its partners are supplying potent special operations forces for training and air support.
